Merrilee Modes Vintage House Dress
The humble house dress- a practical, inexpensive, and comfy garment that was the housewife’s friend. House dresses zipper or button up the front, fit loose, and generally have a couple of patch pockets on the front. This one is fancier than most with slit pockets and some piping trim. My grandmother wore one. You should too.
